Bears WR Wilson breaks collarbone

Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson fractured his clavicle during practice Monday.

The team did not place a timetable for his return.

"It's extremely disappointing," coach Marc Trestman said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "He was continuing to ascend."

Veteran Brandon Marshall labeled the Bears' receiving corps, which also includes Wilson, Alshon Jeffery and tight end Martellus Bennett, as the "four horsemen." The four range in height from 6-foot-3 to 6-foot-6.

However, 5-foot-8, 175-pound Chris Williams will likely be the top candidate to take the No. 3 wide receiver spot with Wilson out. Williams is also a return specialist.

The Bears also have veteran receiver Josh Morgan.

Quarterback Jay Cutler has been throwing to first- and second-team receivers in practice.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers missed eight weeks when he broke his collarbone last season but did not have surgery.

The Bears drafted Wilson in the seventh round last year. He had two catches and played 76 snaps in 2013.
